the attitude it exemplifies. the right is now in that bubble. everybody they know hates obama. so how could all these people be voting for obama? >> in the hours leading up to the election, fox news devoted itself to speculation about romney's win. newt gingrich and others were talking about how big the romney landslide was going to be. gingrich thought it would be 300 electoral votes at least. >> i believe the minimum result will be 53-47 romney, over 300 electoral votes, and the republicans will pick up the senate. >> so are you suggesting that they, a conservative propaganda machine, was blindsided by its own ideology? >> i think that is so. and i think we may have seen a tipping point in this election because in all previous elections, notably the 2010 midterms, we were impressed by the way the conservative propaganda machine was able to really mobilize people who thought that the deficit was the greatest threat to the nation, et cetera, et cetera. and now, it seems to have shifted to the liability question 'cause they didn't know what country they were operating in, which was the way they
-ed for "the new york times" about whether obama can give the confidence americans need right now, focusing on legacy, which he goes on to say is the end game of the president and is often missing what's happened before his eyes. the great mishap of the first term is failing to direct. with a new president, a sky high approval rating, a sea of enthusiasts. with hindsight 2020, how will obama be different with legacy now in front of his mind? >> i actually think, in terms of legacy, he's going to have the legacy of bringing health care reform, which presidents have tried for a very long time, to fruition here in america, and he made a choice in doing that, and it probably was a choice that cost him some political capital because it came at the expense of some other things he might have done that people frankly thought were more important. i think he understands now this is an opportunity to -- and frankly, there's a mandate here, not just to deal with things like the fiscal cliff, but also to continue the economic recovery policies that the president has put in place that have been working s
of the mainstream media and pollsters were right about president obama and it makes me think about this. was this moment with rover, fair will i or unfairly, kind of symbolic with what we receive this year where some folks on the right, certainly not everybody, say the polls were skewed, said the unemployment figures were cooked, not accepting reality? >> yeah. yeah. they were clearly wrong. frank bruni said it in "the new york times" this morning. the orator sun, a debacle. not that he wasn't just wrong but h was cataclysmically wrong. his style comes into question as does his stature at fox news. mine will fox news at this point look at what happened and say, you know, we need to rethink these things? >> i think fox news loves rover and the viewers like rover. >> because he's good television. >> you also had donltd trump who ran for president for about nine seconds it seems and pushed the birther nonsense and tweeted all night that the election was a sham. and it was said he veered far past relevance. >> didn't rover say he made a bad investment, $400 million. >> and that trump was sh
to see. >> over here to your stage right. hi. what will be president obama's 3 legacy initiatives? what luck willie have getting those through to the congress? >> i'll take two. an interview with "the des moines register." he talked about immigration. he can get that done if he plays his cards right. he thought he could get a grand bargain. that will be harder to have a balanced approach to fighting what is -- that is two. >> i would think a third legacy would be a health-care. republicans have been saying all these things are going to happen under obamacare. now was on the evidence starts to come and. >> he always will be the first african-american president. relationships reproved is something we will look back on. >> he wants to reform the tax code. is another area where there could be more than a fleeting impact. has he learned horrible or negotiation -- has he learned hardball or negotiation? >> bob carr. you talk about extending the olive branch. to whom should he hand it? >> speaker boehner and eric cantor are not going anywhere. interesting to see how they danced together. will
better than the republican operation? guest: i think you had it right. it is the obama turn out. host: does that go away? republicans guest: can hope so. i am sure the democratic party has figured out, we have to repeat this. we have seen what the obama camping can do. we are going to do it again. republicans, they had a much better effort by the party. i had a turnout party by conservative groups that made millions of calls. it did not produce what they hoped it would. they got a lot of voters out, but obviously not enough. host: i want to take you to a clip of a conservative writer talking about what needs to happen with the republican party. [video clip] >> the republican national chairman, mitch mcconnell, john boehner, and other republican leaders behind the epic election failure of 2012 should be replaced with leaders more in tune with the conservative base of the republican party. likewise, established republican consultants establishedkarl rove, romney campaign senior advisers, and pollsters should never be hired to run or consult on a national campaign again. nobody would giv
. and they also saw a real right- wing backlash against president obama that they did not want to contribute to. that was racist as well. you know, the birth or movement, you cannot be from here. who wants to back that? now it is four years later and the question is what will president obama do? it is not will he accomplished, but what will his administration allow everyone to accomplish that in 2008, i think people felt they had hit their heads against a brick wall for so long. the wall became a door. the door opened a crack. people wondered if it would swing open or be slammed shut? it is up to force more powerful than the present of the united states. that is people organized around this country. they have an opportunity now. they saw that will about to be put in place which was mitt romney and they opted for something else. they opted for the door. but the question is will they kicked it open? that is the question right now. there are two forces more powerful than the most powerful person on earth. organize people and the actual force of nature. and that is what we experienced in new york t
right before that at that debate was president obama defending susan rice and hillary clinton directly, by their titles, and condemning as offensive mitt romney trying to say that that attack was being covered up or that the country was being misled about it. that is what we saw again today on full blast, at the president's first press conference after being re-elected. the beltway common wisdom on this is that president obama is picking a fight with his secretary of state nomination if he does pick susan rice for that position. and when the beltway accuses you of picking a fight, they always mean, oh, no, no, you shouldn't do that. but seeing the president up there talking about this today with such fire in the belly and seeing as he did that as well in the debate when the same subject came up, i think this may be something more than just picking a fight. there's plenty of reason to be angry, to be concerned about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. it is very much worth being angry about the people who carried out that attack, right? it is worth talking about. it's worth even
'm going to hate it! can you hear me? i will hate it! >> boy, he really endorsed president obama, right? >> i think there are a lot of conservative republicans who feel that way and are very angry about it. >> i thought he did, didn't he? >> he didn't officially endorse him, no. >> but he praised his leadership. >> he did better, yes. he did better. >> which is, your right. in some ways, people don't care about endorsements but when someone from the other party says you're doing great responding to this storm that is bigger than an endorsement. >> probably did a lot for his own re-election, governor christie. he did a pretty good job for new jersey during the storm but it was very unusual. >> but don't you think he's a smart politician, right? he knows that new jersey's probably going to go to the democrats, right? his constituency, as it is -- if he knows that -- he probably thought that obama was probably going to be re-elected. he was hedging his bets. >> i don't know that he knew that. i do think that there was a lot of money on the table to help his state and they were reeling and
thing? >> bob: saying the right thing -- first of all, notion that you said in your monologue that obama was responsible for guy, this guy is responsible for drawing attention to himself. when you talk about art, you call it art? >> greg: it is art. have you seen the stuff the left calls art? >> bob: i couldn't agree with you more. most of the stuff is on the extreme is terrible. but this guy drew attention to himself. parole violation -- >> dana: 300 people have seen the youtube video before hillary clinton said to tyrone woods' father they'd arrest the guy that made the video. when we know they knew at the time the video had nothing to do with it. the right thing is let him go. >> bob: how about letting everybody who violated probation go? >> dana: you don't see a difference in >> bob: no, i don't. >> greg: okay. the coolest rap sheet -- he is not watching. is bank fraud, using false identities. not a reliable character. a lot like you bob, ten years ago. but he is not in jail for that stuff. he's in jail because hillary said we'll put him in jail. she didn't say we are going to kill t
votes in florida comes in for president obama, i think simon is just about right. it sounded a little outlandish a few days ago. >> ann? appreciationlaise's for the book, "the victory laps ." when i was canvassing in virginia and i was maybe the fourth person going columbus list and i was asking whether people thought it would vote in the morning or the afternoon, i knew i was carrying and does what he recommended. you never heard me talk about women candidates and i'm so excited about the women were coming in. to be the senator from north dakota and she is a fabulous person. emily's list supports women for congress and it wahasa one loss record. if you compare how much they raised and spent with the success compared to some of the suepr pac's, they did a heck of a lot better job. >> who were the losers? >> the billionaires handing over all that money. >> they got shelly in nevada. >> that's unfortunate. >> they did not get what they thought they were be buying of. >> the biggest loser is carl rove -- karl rove. he would let them keep even more, a fairly bottom line decision. a lot of
is president obama on all of this? let's get right to our special guest this evening. we have former assistant secretary of state rich williamson and syndicated radio talk show host john boutzer. how much injury they inflict on hamas? i want to know if the total blowout is possible? >> yes, it is, larry. why that is critical is because egypt is involved profoundly in this problem. morici, the new le elely electe president of egypt, is in the muslim brothers. the muslim brothers and hamas are directly related. this is about egypt and the 1979 peace treaty. >> right. i'm going to get back to the whole issue of the spreading war. but i'm just real interested in the assessment, ambassador williamson, welcome back, that israel can just inflict massive, permanent damage on hamas and their alleged military. >> well, larry, first of all, i think it's really important to take a step back. we've been involved in a presidential election that sucked up the oxygen. hamas is a group that's recognized as a terrorist organization by the u.s. government, the israeli government and the european union, has incre
. doubling down on hope and barack obama. what does the winner hope will give him and more important us a second term upgrade? will the hard right in the house give thumbs down for the re-elected president, will they risk the fiscal abyss to keep their ties to the tea party? and finally, this is my country. even mitt romney was echoing that cry from the anti-obama crowd, pledging to take our country back. but that is deep in the past. no matter how hard they want it, america's fewer you to -- future just won't look like the early 1950's. hi, i'm chris matthews. welcome to the show. with us today, the washington post bob woodward. "the washington post" kathleen parker, "the new york times" d helen cooper. first up. barack obama's place in american presidential history was upgrated tuesday with his convincing sweeping re-election by an entirely new american elect rat. -- electorate. >> we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. we are and forever will be the united states of america. and together, with your h
right now deserves barack obama. four years ago the public could be excused for voting for obama because it was a blank canvas which people could draw whatever pictures they wanted. but not this time. barack obama had a record that we could judge him by and majority of americans barely over 50% looked at that record and decided they wanted more of the same. >> eric: sean puts it well. 50%, more of the same, has conservatives scratching their head. >> greg: look, there is demographics. how many white voters disappeared? where did they go? 12 million. where did they go? the republican party, they have to act like frito lay. you don't just make a bunch of doritos. you have to keep making them. they have to go out and find new people and branch out. again, be confident in the ideas. and go to the new constituencies. >> eric: a lot of people said, leading up to the election, ton-out matters. it turns out, turn-out did matter. what did romney do wrong not getting the turn-out? >> greg: >> they say we should have courted latino voters. the republican party could have -- george bush did more on
payers? >> right now, president obama's propose al would have dividends taxed at ordinary income. that is substantially higher tax rate than the 15% tax rate that toward are enjoying right now. either way, we think that dividend yields will ultimately get dinged. as you mentioned, they have gotten hit. they were down something like 3% and the week ending just before the election. even in anticipation of that. it's hard to know. remember, a lot of dividend stocks are held in tax-exempt accounts, 401(k)s, pensions, endowments, foundations. we are dealing with a subset here. my sense is we will not see a pull back because a lot of dividends aren't taxed to the extent you would think. >> good to have you on the program. thank you so much. >> thank you, maria. >> up next on the "wall street journal report," he runs what some think is the strongest bank. what will life be life under president obama's next four [ male announcer ] how can power consumption in china, impactports from new zealand, textile production in spain, and the use of medical technology in the u.s.? at t. rowe price,
? on all of the issues you mentioned, it was very clear that president obama gets it, right? he knows the opportunities that are there. he wants everybody to be able to take advantage of the opportunities. he cares about those people. mitt romney cares about those who, like himself, have been hugely successful. all they want is more, more, more for them and they don't care about other people who are getting started. it sums it up why president obama got 60% of the young vote. he deserves it. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >>"if you ever raise taxes on the rich, you're going to destroy our economy." not true! >>oh really? >>tax cuts don't create jobs. the golden years as the conservatives call them, we had the highest tax rates, and the highest amount of growth, and the highest amount of jobs. those are facts. >>"if you ever raise taxes on the rich, you're going to destroy our economy." not true! let's hear yours. politically direct means no b.s. just telling you what's going on in politics today. >>at the only on-line forum with a di
the right, to think that this event is part of some grand conspiracy that the obama administration has dreamed up to keep the truth from coming out about benghazi. this is a soldier, a great accomplishment, it's a sad event and at the same time whenever somebody in a national security position like that who has not only access to classified information but who literally sits astride all of our secrets, and someone known to him is trying to get into his computer, obviously you have to resign. >> richard, this is a very sensitive testimony, not only for petraeus or but for the whole question of benghazi. this is a very trouble some spot for this administration. >> the whole benghazi -- the administration has struggled with. they haven't been able to put behind them and just going back to the point that you were just making, there doesn't appear, at this stage, any indication that the investigation into paula broadwell was an investigation that she may have been combing for secrets or anything like that. they said that there's no indication that would lead to that, that it was a spying or
is a deepening of the progressive project under president obama who has a tremendous amount of leverage right now. now, that happens to be something that i don't favor. i don't think that that's the right way for -- >> bob does. bob doesn't think he's going to be progressive enough, right? >> that's exactly right. >> right, and perhaps that's true from bob's perspective. i don't think the president obama's views are identical to bob's. but i tend to think that -- >> that's an understatement. >> yeah, but i do think that barack obama -- >> you've been quite critical of obama during the first three years. >> but i think that barack obama is very much a progressive. i do not think that he's an eisenhower republican or a gerald ford republican. i think that he's someone who really does want to deepen a larger social transformation. i'm also somewhat, i also believe that he really does believe in this idea that public investment is what will likely grow the economy. >> when i grew up president obama would have been considered a moderate republican i suppose. maybe somebody would have said he's a liber
that he's been doing the right thing? >> well, president obama did not talk a great deal about his record and he did not talk a great deal about his plans. he ran a campaign that was very powerfully and effectively negative. again, this a republican challenger. i painted the republicans as frightening, unacceptable. unfortunately, he had a lot of cooperation with the republicans in making that case. this is still a middle class family and yet the big majority of the republican people said that they were not in touch with the republican class. you have to ask, what did republicans do to show middle class america that that was the mistake? it was not a middle class-oriented platform and hasn't been for a while. so why romney lost, i go through the reasons that people were put off from the republican party and i say this is a deeper problem and we need to make a deeper connection and this involves a much more economically inclusive message, a more culturally modern message. and it means a message that takes into account the environment, which is an issue of rising consciousness for younger v
. >> are you on drugs right now. >> no. no. >> obama momma. [ laughter ] >> are you expecting? >> oh god, no. >> why are you guys excited about a second term? >> we both are very happy about obama care. >> obama care. >> i'm really excited to see obama carroll out. >> what if they passed obama care premiums went up. >> i got to admit they put it on me that time. >> are you concerned about this massive national debt. >> he spent the least amount of money than any president. >> obama? >> yeah, did he. >> are you shear about that. >> i am positive of that. >> what kind of rubbish is that? >> what's point of raising taxes on wealthy people. >> they can afford to pay a little bit more. >> because if you raise taxes on just the wealthy it's only about 68 billion in revenue. >> what do you really care. am i right? >> you don't hate the rich do you. >> i love the rich. >> right. >> what do my eyes tell gru if you raise taxes on the rich it only amounts to a week in spending. >> you know what knocking out public television gets you about an hour. >> really? >> i know i'm talking to the enemy right no
, obama is a marxist, a muslim. >> bill: that's the president. you follow conservative web sites, right? >> i do. monica colmes just said what i just presented happens on the right, too. i don't follow it, does it? >> it does not happen the way you describe on the right. look, i wrote a whole book about this called "what the bleep just happened?" what you are describing are are are s. a far left ciewx. kooks. the party of harry truman who dropped bomb on japan to stop world war ii. get job creation and economic growth. far left nuts now running the country not only at the highest levels of government but in the media and the unions and george soros and now on behar. extreme to the nnnth degree. >> bill: that's her parkway. >> very important distinction to be made and you need understand it. >> bill: i have got to get this question in. today we had a bunch of people going as i set it up to the white house. the one that stuck out to me was move on. move on was the one that put out the ad and they spent $17 million putting out attack ads. the one ad had two senior women cursing w
: gay rights groups urging president obama to sign an executive order that does, what? >> banning discrimination by federal contractors for employment purposes. this would specify that you cannot discriminate against gay or transgendered individuals when coming to hand out contracts. they would have to prove they were discriminated against. >> bill: just federal contracts. >> you know why that is? they want to set a standard, set a precedent so it can be applied uniformly. >> bill: apparatus now to handle that stuff. >> no. state. not federal. >> bill: want a federal law that says if you don't hire us because you are gay. >> can't discriminate based on. >> gay or transgeneral terred. that's why they want the president to step in. >> bill: that's okay, right? duo pose that. >> no, i don't oppose it it's just the means by which they are doing it have having the president declare by proclamation. >> bill: how else are they going to do it? >> that's what they expect politically because he has came out against doma and for same sex marriage. >> bill: we don't want anybody -- i want eve
americans. the republican challenger said he did not want to do that and doesn't that give president obama the right to push for raising taxes on the wealthiest americans? >> well, i think the house got re-elected. their mandate is to not raise tax rates. go back to simpson-bowles. simpson bowles rejected the idea of higher tax rates. the people who will give up most deductions are the wealthy among us. big a rate, 30% and tell people you have to pay it. how many americans in the upper income level fully pay 35%. the tax code is a social engineering document. flatten the tax rate, make people pay the rate you pick, have a 25% corporate rate. if you have bad tax policy, you're going to have bad job creation. simpson-bowles is the way to go forward. i'm confident that's the way we will go. >> we'll watch it, senator graham, appreciate your time. >>> coming up next, john king and candy crowley, also david gergen and gloria borger. when you listen to senator graham, do you get a sense that we're looking at anything other than gridlock? you can say simpson-bowles all you want. >> you're going t
the concession phone call? jimmy fallon had some ideas. >> hello, president obama. >> all right. >> is this your concession call or are you still busy watching fox news? >> no, no. this is my concession call. congratulations, blah, blah, blah, you did it. >> hey, hey, hey, now, everything okay? seem a little down. >> just that i really wanted to be president. i was going to create 12 million jobs. >> well, look, look, buck up. you created one job, except it was for me. >> all right, very funny. you got me. you know, i can laugh at myself. ha, ha, ha. >> one last incarnation of the romney laugh. also, any clue what this post election tweet from a blogger with the atlantic politics wire is getting at? quote, it's perfectly reasonable to plan a transition after election but we rarely see one -- see what the loser was planning. here goes, if you had followed the link posted in the tweet there, you would have found yourself at the presidential transition website for president-elect mitt romney after he lost. that's right. here is the what could have been home page that mistakenly went public. even a
in every case the pollsters had it right. >> you want to look at the contours of the election, were you surprised by the sort of stunning sweep we saw the other night? >> i certainly was, chris. you know, the obama people were very confident and their model -- the way they described what they were going about doing i thought made sense analytically, but they won even the states they thought they were going to win by bigger margins. they thought colorado would be a razor-thin election like florida, and they won by five or six points. they were an incredible machine, and the fact that they were able to get african-american turnout in ohio to go up by 33%, to go from 11% of the electorate to 15%, no one on either side would have thought the obama campaign could do that, and that was the margin of victory for them in ohio. >> how many days before the election did romney know his goose was cooked, that he had to go to pennsylvania and michigan and minnesota? how early did he know he had to go for the long shots, that he was probably going to lose? >> i don't know that he ever thought that, c
are we talking about here? >> a lot of people. >> they came out in droves for him. >> for obama. >> yes. how many legal mexicans were voting? >> right. but i think the woman vote, there is always the gender gap. with the hispanic vote, the republican party seems to be shrinking. that's why people #r* bringing it up. >> how much of them are legal? >> i'm sure 90% kenyans voted for him. >> all mexicans are legal. they might not be american, but they are legal. >> no. they are undocumented. they are missing a piece of paper. >> this may be the most important news of the election. there is a report that in the virginia senate race between tim kaine and george allen, hank the cat is in third place. >> wow. >> with around 6,000 votes. >> i would have voted for him. >> jedediah, if the gop will talk about the future and rebranding, i think feline candidates have to be a part of the discussion. >> have to be, dogs, cats, parrots. we have a bunch of parrots. >> i hope the race doesn't end in a dead heat. >> wow. >> oh man. >> wow. >> not even going to try to come back to that one. >> man behind
, in virginia 20%, ohio 11% in 2008, it was 15% in 2012. >> i think president obama had it right on election night. when he said, talking eloquently about the long lines of people and then interrupted that and said, by the way, let's fix that, we're the world's greatest democracy, we shouldn't be having people waiting in lines for hours on end to cast their vote. we could do so many things to fix that to modernize voter registration so everybody is registered, and there's no potential for fraud, to make it so there's uniform standards around the country, about how many voting machines you need to have and there's early vote. think about early vote. >> a national holiday to vote. >> think about early voting. what other government program has as much demonstration of popularity that everybody wants to use it so let's cut back on it. because it's too popular. that's the kind of thing we ought to be focusing on. not -- not this question of the voting rights act, is one of the most successful laws in american history. it is a monument of american life. and were it to be overturned or this -- reme
sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> romney says obama bought the election. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. you'd have thought that mitt romney would have stopped this crap. during the campaign he was out there selling it, that president obama was buying black votes by dumping the work requirement for welfare. remember that little sugar plum? it had it all, the accusation that minority voters could be scarfed up with a little chump change. throw them a little something and the votes would come pouring back. here he was yesterday, romney, schmoozing with his donor base about how the whole thing went wrong. it seems the president did a little wholesale purchasing, he said. he bought the minority with health care and bought the students with free student loans. great work there, mitt. you're at it again with your double barrels. one, claims that aren't true, and, two, that old dog whistle of yours. fact. people in the income bracket you mentioned have to kick in to get health care. fact, students still ha
opportunity he has to stick a thumb in barack obama's eye. but jonathan is completely right. he picked the wrong person here. susan rice had nothing to do with benghazi. but look, the republicans are facing an electoral wipeout in the last election. they still want to oppose barack obama any way they can, but what's their excuse? because the american people have now chosen barack obama over the republican guy. so what do they do? they have to gin up a conspiracy, a scandal of some sort, something they can attach the word "gate" to. now it's benghazi-gate. >> ron, you got it. this is the big alternative universal view of their world view in which you don't know what color the sky is over there. but they believe that this is as big as watergate, and although nixon got re-elected in '72, he will come down by '74. even though this guy won in '12, he will come down by '14 because of this big gate ron mentioned. they have it in their head this is big time. >> in 1997 after bill clinton got re-elected but before lewinsky, the republicans tried to do the same thing on chinese fund-raising. rem
